Spoon – The Underdog

One of the standout tracks from Spoon’s great (best?) album, Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, released in 2007, “The Underdog” shows Spoon sticking to their guitar-driven sound, with the addition of some cheery horns. The song is remarkably light and even danceable, despite the somewhat dark lyrics, telling someone of the fate that awaits them if they don’t start being more considerate. The video is cool, although it doesn’t necessarily break any ground with the one-take format, and it concerns a seemingly long-suffering studio producer checking up on various aspects of the band’s recording of the song, which has people hidden all over the studio playing different instruments.
